Re-evaluate Your SMARTER Life Plan
Now that we are well into September, the last month of the Third Quarter of 2022, how are you doing with your SMARTER goals for the year? Notice I didn’t say New Year’s Resolution – see my blog: Resolutions – Not! Make Goals Instead, for my thoughts on these pesky items.
Oh, you don’t have any goals either? It is never too late or too early to start a plan, a vision plan for a quarter, a year or a lifetime.
They never go out of style. I always have something I’m working toward. It keeps my attitude and outlook fresh and flowing.
This year, I had several major focuses : 1. Publish my book; 2. Re-ignite my spiritual program; and 3. Declutter.
With all three, I’ve made great progress. On my book, it is ready for pre-sale – check it out here. So excited! I also have done some great work on my spiritual program. The declutter project is sometimes more difficult to measure, as there is less around; but my life feels lighter as I see more space and feel more spaciousness in my home, office, and garage.
How about you? How are you doing? Any great news? Leave a comment and let me know.
A SMARTER Plan
Oh, you don’t have any plans at this time – that is easy enough to fix. Pick something, or 2, or 3 somethings. Write out your specific objectives, make certain you have a way to measure progress, and pick a date to be done by. You’ve got the first elements of a SMARTER plan. See my blog, Making Change – SMARTER Goals for more information on SMARTER goals.
Why a SMARTER plan? First what is a SMARTER plan? It is made up of a handful of smarter goals:
S – Specific
M – Measurable
A – Achievable
R – Realistic
T – Time-Bound
E – Evaluate
R – Readjust
My favorite part is how we evaluate them periodically and readjust them as necessary – this is one of those logical and periodic times for evaluation. A quarter end is a good time to take stock of progress on your collection of goals – your SMARTER plan.
